Each Colour Study originates with photographs of papers and films, layered three to five deep on a stack of glass shelves. With the camera positioned directly above, each layer is photographed in focus as the others fall outside of the field of focus. The photographs are layered and blended to create abstractions that reference contemporary art, including pointillism, colour fields, opaque and transparent layers, and collage. The technique remains true to the original photographs as nothing is added or subtracted in the process.
